Happy Valentine’s Day
A Thankfully Imperfect Woman!
ps…This is in our garage, just outside the door into the house. It’s the middle of winter, so the heater had to be included…and then of course for a winter picnic you’ll need the thermos!
My daughter found this great lamp and spray painted it pink!
I had my yearly checkup the other day. They did all the basics…
First I had my blood pressure taken.
Dr. Nicole said: “Is it getting tight?” This, as she was pumping and pumping and pumping the cuff.
Next she said: “Now I need to chseck yow eyes and eaws.”
“Yowr eyes awr good.”
Right ear: “This eaw is doughty.”
Left ear: “This eaw isn’t doughty…but it’s kind of haiwy.”
(To which I said, rather surprised…”WHAT!?!”)
She went on to explain…”Fwom yowr haiw.”
Then it was time to check my heart.
She asked first “Whearw is yow haught?”
Then she listened very intently and proclaimed “Yowr haught is stwong and healthy.”
“Now I need to give yow a sot.”
I pretended to look worried and she said, “Sots let yow be helfy. Sots have medicine.”
Then she checked my temperature and said “Yow mouf is kind of sad.”
Which of course made me smile…
so I gave her a hug.
I love my little daycare 3 yr old Doctor.
She makes me smile.
Ps…Be sure to clean your ears before your next checkup!
By now, you’ve seen most of my house, all decorated for Christmas…
The bedrooms, dressing room, and bathrooms only get a few touches of Christmas, so they really don’t need their own post.
But the dining room…now the dining room is another story.
For a couple of years now, I’ve wanted to put a (faux) Christmas tree in there.
I’ve had the perfect plan.
I’d collected ornaments from Goodwill and garage sales.
I’d picked up a Christmas tree from a friend who had decided to give it away.
But last year, sadly, I was just too sick to get all my decorations up, and that tree stayed in the basement.
But this year…
This year is different.
Without further ado, take a look at my dining room Christmas. A moment of silence to appreciate the beauty…
I could stand here and look at it all day. Especially from this view…
Welcome to my kitchen!
Remember when I told you my whole house changes over for Christmas?
Yes, even the kitchen.
There are a couple special pieces in my kitchen…
The “Our Father” sampler that you see is one that my Mom made when she was young. I absolutely love it and had Tim frame it with wood from an old door we found! Read more
My parents were known for their outside Christmas decorations. They’d have people come from all over and stop on the highway to take pictures. We used to laugh because they kept expanding them…I remember telling them ‘you can’t decorate their whole 40 acres!’. They’d light up every tree and they lit up the entire house. Then they started adding the big plastic Christmas decorations outside. And adding…and adding…and adding.
